Verizon Patent & Licensing, InterDigital (News - Alert) Technology Awarded New Patents
New advancements are being made in the field of telecommunications everyday, and the grant of patents for enhanced technologies allows streamlined and regular introduction of solutions based upon them to the markets. The area of Ethernet connectivity enhancements is no exception to places where innovation is occurring.
A new patent has been awarded to Verizon (News - Alert) Patent and Licensing, Basking Ridge, N.J., for a ‘low loss layer two ethernet network.’ Developed by Roman Krzanowski, White Plains, N.Y., the patent no. 8,345,568 says in its abstract issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that it comprises of a new method that establishes two virtual connections between a first device and a second device.
During the process, the abstract continues, initially a data flow is received at the first device, and is further duplicated to create duplicated data flows that are forwarded to the second device through both the virtual connections. Later, after the duplicated data flows are received at the second device, performance characteristic of the data flow received through both the virtual connections is also calculated. This performance characteristic of both the data flows can be used for further analysis. Application for the patent had been filed on the 28th of October, 2009; and its entire text can be accessed here.
Similarly, a another patent has been granted to InterDigital Technology, Wilmington, Del. Four co-inventors including Stephen E. Terry, Northport, N.Y., Guodong Zhang, Farmingdale, N.Y., James M. Miller, Verona, N.J., and Stephen G. Dick, Nesconset, N.Y. have developed this patent no. 8,345,644 that establishes ‘wireless communication method and system for configuring radio access bearers for enhanced uplink services.’ According to abstract of this patent, it proposes a new wireless communication method and system that can effectively administer an enhanced uplink radio access bearer or ‘EU RAB.’
Comprising of a minimum of one wireless transmit/receive unit or ‘WTRU,’ one Node-B and a radio network controller or ‘RNC,’ the solution leverages its RNC to configure the EU RAB, which can be integrated with an enhanced dedicated channel or ‘E-DCH.’ EU traffic statistics and EU performance statistics are streamed to the RNC through the WTRU and the Node-B. Afterwards, on the basis of the EU traffic statistics, EU performance statistics and information collected by the RNC, configuration of the EU RAB is modified.
Finally, it should also be noted that in December 2012, Verizon Patent and Licensing, Basking Ridge, N.J., had been assigned a patent no. 8,332,639 developed by Daniel M. Wood, Acton, Mass.; for a ‘data encryption over a plurality of MPLS networks.’ Indeed, as stated at the top, the move to extend Ethernet and other all-IP network connectivity solutions is picking up speed and becoming important not just in enterprises but in residential and mobile situations as well. It is why so much attention is being given to constant innovation in the area, including from companies like channel sponsor Patton.
